At Urban Nirvana, we champion all people to be self-motivating, relaxed and more centered individuals. It’s why we specialize in massage, skin and haircare, and other services that make you look and feel like your best self. We know that doesn’t end with the external.

Therefore, in honor of Charmain Gooch, recent winner of $1 million dollar TED prize, we’d like to share the top five TED talks given by women that empower women. It’s not just about being female, of course, but championing females as well. Both men and women can do this, and we encourage all of you to watch the following TED talks and allow yourself to be moved, and to let your brain to expand. After all, “the miracle of your mind is to see the world as it isn’t.”
